Lost my sweet 12.5 year old yesterday

Yesterday, my sweet, devoted and protective Argon had to be put down. He has been with us since he was a puppy, and belonged to my late husband, which makes his death ever so difficult. He had a large benign lump removed a couple of years ago, but other than being overweight , he was alright. The vet thought he might have nasal cancer and put him on prednisone, which made him feel great, but caused him to gain weight. He had respiratory issues, and the last 4 weeks, he was having difficulty walking, and did not show his same zest for life. For the last two days, he could not get up or walk, and was growling when I touched him. Now I feel so very sad without him, keep looking for him to be sitting at the door, or waiting for his snack. I know the sadness will take awhile to go away, I just feel so empty without him.

Welcome to the forum. I am so sorry for your loss. Itís so hard to see our beloved dogs decline right before our eyes. It must bring up a whole range of feelings and grief him being your late husbands dog. Hopefully in time the wonderful memories of sweet Argon along with your late husband will bring you some comfort. May sweet Argon Rest In Peace.

I am so sorry for the loss of sweet Argon. We understand the pain and sadness you are feeling. They leave a big hole in our heart and a very empty house. I wish you comfort and peace.

I am so very sorry for your loss of Argon, give yourself the time you need to grieve and for heart to heal. It's a long slow journey, be kind to yourself.

I believe that one day we will be with our loved ones and our dogs again, I hope you can find some comfort in knowing your husband and Argon are together again.

Godspeed Argon

I am so very sorry for your loss of Argon. He lived a long wonderful life with you. I know how hard it is to lose a beloved pup as we lost our Callie in July. She had just turned 8. This was very heartbreaking and I wasn't convinced that I could get through it. But time has helped heal the pain and the support I have received from this forum has been a blessing. May Argon's sweet soul rest in peace with your late husband. Wishing you peace and healing.

I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet Argon. We lost our girl close to 2 years ago at the age of 12 and a half as well. It is such a hard time and I am glad you found us here on the forum as a support. I would also love to see some pics of your boy when you feel up to it.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet boy. I lost my sweet boy Buddy two weeks ago today. I can tell you that I feel a little better than when I did so close in time like you, but it is a struggle. I feel your pain. I just went to a new therapist tonight and spent the hour crying. The loss, the empty feeling, we all understand. And I'm sure it brings up the pain of losing your husband, I am so sorry. I cannot possibly imagine. You'll be in my thoughts in prayers. This forum, though I am new, has already helped me tremendously, just knowing it is not just me who feels this way is comforting. Like you, I will miss my boy every day for as long as I am here, nothing can replace their love, but I'm hoping over time we will get through.
